Death Road to Canada is a Randomly Generated Road Trip Simulator. You control and manage a car full of jerks as they explore cities, recruit weird people, argue with each other, and face gigantic swarms of slow zombies.

Death Road is built for replay value. Everything is randomized: locations, events, survivor appearances and personalities. There's a different story every time you play, set in a world that doesn't take itself too seriously.

And that's why they call it Death Road to Canada. It can be too harsh for its own good, and folks who are tired of roguelikes will struggle to embrace that part of the design, but it's still one of the better road-trip games I've played thanks to its cheerful personality, amusing writing, and all-around charm.

Death Road to Canada is a really enjoyable and successful roguelite. The usual conventions and trappings of the genre are well suited to both the setting and the presentation of the game, and the novel adaptations of the old Oregon Trail conventions add a great layer of strategy and randomness to the mix. Whilst the environments can be a little repetitive and the need for replaying numerous times is potentially offputting, there is so much to discover, and so many different game modes to unlock that it's easy to recommend. While playing this won't necessarily help with an exit strategy for if your country becomes occupied by rabid and dangerous monsters, it's certainly a fun entry in the exponentially growing roguelite scene.

An interesting survival experience with a touch of The Binding of Isaac and the (now) classic retro-pixel style. A good way to enjoy a different type of Apocalypse.

Death Road to Canada is a fun and varied game, thanks to humor, zombie fights, traps and cool action. Random events between stops make the result of each trip unpredictable.
